Port Name Description
Porto or sometimes called Oporto is the second-largest city in Portugal, after Lisbon, and has been awarded with two Unesco Heritage Sites. Porto is a unique mix of monuments and wine. This is the very city that originated the name “Port Wine”. Some of the cities attractions include the Dom Luis Bridge, The Cathedral, Cais Da Ribeira Unesco district, Sao Francisco Church and much more. SeaDream has arranged a highlights orientation as well as tasting some port wine.
The port of Vigo, with its strategic location in the northwest corner of Spain was constantly fought over during the many periods of war between Spain, Britain and France. Nearby Baiona is a town with a medieval historical center situated by the outlet of the Vigo Bay. On March 1, 1493, the Pinta, one of the ships from Columbus' voyage to discover the New World returned to Europe and arrived in Baiona, making the town's port the first to receive news of the discovery of America. A replica of the ship can be visited, and the event is celebrated each and every year. SeaDreamers have two land adventure options that include the sights and tastes of Bayona as well as the Unesco Awarded town of Santiago de Compostela.
Santander, Spain is located on the northern coast of Spain. It is an idyllic combination of sea and mountains. It has eleven sandy beaches with crystal clear waters and are a favorite summer attraction. Main attractions include the Cathedral, El Sardinero, The Placio de la Magdalena, El Hotel Real, Gran Casino del Sardinero and the Lighthouse of Cabo Mayor.
The Kursaal Convention Center’s glowing cubes and Basque Culinary Center’s elongated terraces have become symbols of contemporary San Sebastian, but traditional Belle Époch and Baroque were certainly never abandoned. Begin your San Sebastian journey in the atmospheric Old City – the capital of Pais Vasco’s Gipuzkoa Province, it is a vibrant center of Basque culture and history. The French frontier is just a few kilometers down the road, and perhaps San Sebastian shares more with Biarritz and Bayonne than it does with Madrid.
Port Médoc is a small marina located on the entrance of the Gironde estuary. It is a modern port and offers quiet and sheltered berths. SeaDream will be the first commercial vessel to call this marina. As most of the vineyards are closer to the sea, we thought we would arrive as close as possible to the “product”. The wine regions of Bordeaux have a large number of wine growing areas, differing widely in size and sometimes overlapping properties. SeaDream has organized some great adventures to include – you guessed it, wine tasting.
La Rochelle is a city in western France and a seaport on the Bay of Biscay, a part of the Atlantic Ocean. La Rochelle's main feature is the "Vieux Port" ("Old Harbour"), which is at the heart of the city, picturesque and lined with seafood restaurants. The city walls are open to an evening promenade. The old town has been well-preserved. Inland is the country of Cognac and Pineau.
Belle-Ile or Belle-Ile-en-Mer is a French island off the coast of Brittany in the departement of Morbihan, and the largest of Brittany's islands. During the summer the island's population increases dramatically, as many people own a second home on the island due to its secluded location and beaches.
Lisbon is the capital as well as the largest city in Portugal. It is one of the oldest cities in the world . Lisbon has two sites listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Sites: Belem Tower and Jeronimos Monastery. The city stretches along the banks of the Tejo river. This is primarily an embark/debark port of call for SeaDream. Should you need any assistance with transfers, private arrangements of hotel recommendations. Kindly contact our destination specialists shore tours @ shore.tours@mail.telepac.pt.
Saint-Malo is a walled city in Brittany in north-western France on the English Channel. Saint-Malo has one of the highest concentration of seafood restaurants in Europe. It is famous for its local oysters from the nearby village of Cancale. SeaDream has arranged an adventure to Mont Saint Michel as well as a walking overview of Saint Malo on foot.
The Bailiwick of Jersey is a British Crown Dependency off the coast of Normandy, France. Jersey is a separate possession of the Crown and is not part of the United Kingdom.
Dover is considered the world’s busiest ferry port in the county of Dorset, in South East England. The port faces France across the narrowest part of the English Channel. The surrounding chalk cliffs have become world known as the White Cliffs of Dover. SeaDream will dock adjacent to the passenger terminal.

Here the conservation scientists work with the animals close up and learn what they need to maintain good health, breed, survive and thrive in their natural habitats. They can then share this vital information with their colleagues working with them in the wild. The Trust’s founder, Gerald Durrell, was not only a famous author and naturalist; he was also a pioneering “rebel who was right”. He firmly believed that zoos had a responsibility to save species from extinction. When he set out, most people didn’t believe that animals were disappearing from the planet, and even if they were, why should humans care? Over forty years on, Durrell Wildlife continues to be a pioneer for conservation and his work is admired and emulated around the world. Wherever possible the animals live in specially landscaped, spacious enclosures which closely resemble their natural homes – that way you can see them behaving just like they would in the wild.

Some Hennessy history: The Irish founder, Richard Hennessy was so charmed by the region that he established a trading firm in the town of Cognac in 1765. Under his son, James, the company expanded rapidly and took the name it still has today: Jas Hennessy & Co. Since then, eight generations of Hennessy have run this outstanding company, traveling the world and building the brand’s universal reputation. Hennessy has always had an international outlook. At the start it shipped cognacs to its natural markets in Ireland and Great Britain. London was the heart of the brand’s sales strategy for nearly two centuries. The British capital was a springboard for shipments to distant markets such as Australia and America and, particularly from 1794 onwards, New York. In the last quarter of the 19th century, the company began bottling on a large scale and became the first cognac brand. Today, Hennessy sells more than 40 million bottles, and is part of LVMH, the world’s top luxury and prestige group, and is acting as an ambassador for the French concept of gracious living.

It still maintains all of the splendor from when it was a royal summer destination. Before you get confused, it is a good idea to explain that Donostia is Basque for San Sebastian. Although the Basque language is ancient, Donostia is less so. Sancho el Mayor (called Sancho el Fuerte - Sancho the Strong) founded the city of San Sebastian around 1180 in what is today the Parte Vieja (historical quarter). The city's unique geographical situation, an isthmus joining the city center with Monte Urgull (Mount Urgull), the Bahía de la Concha (Shell Bay) and the outlet of the Río Urumea (Urumea River), made it ideal as a military stronghold with a port. Towards the end of the 19th century, with the royal court of Madrid taking up summer residence in Donostia at the Palacio de Miramar (Miramar Palace), the city became a popular tourist destination and spa resort.

Santander

Bilbao & The Guggenheim Museum

Bilbao, the industrial and financial capital of the Basque Country, is situated between two ranges of hills on both sides of the River Nervion. The iron ore mines near the city were discovered by the Romans, who paved the way for the numerous foundries later built on both banks of the river. Today, the city is undergoing a spectacular transformation. In the quarter of Abandoibarra, you will find the famous Guggenheim Museum designed by North American architect Frank O. Gehry. This love-it-or-hate-it architectural environment represents some of the most groundbreaking architecture to have come out of the 20th century. You will explore the impressive permanent and temporary exhibits on a guided visit inside and outside of the museum, followed by some free time for your own exploring. On leaving the Museum, you take a short drive down to the Old Quarter located on the right bank of the river Nervion, an area which has undergone huge reconstruction following a devastating flood in 1983 and where many of the streets are now pedestrian. Here you will view the 14th-century Gothic cathedral, the Arriaga Theatre, the Plaza Nueva and the Bilbao Ria, which separates the old and the new city. In Basque cities, it is typical for the locals to make an entire lunch or dinner out of the surprising and delicious miniature cuisine known as "pintxos' (Basque equivalent for "tapas"), a dining experience like no other. The Basque pintxos are reputed to be the best in Spain, with a wide variety from traditional grilled wild mushrooms, stuffed spicy peppers, cured ham or more avant-garde creations. You and your fellow SeaDream friends will lunch in a traditional restaurant on the local "tapas" complimented by local wines. After lunch there will be a little free time to browse and shop at your leisure in the Old Quarter among chic boutiques, perfume stores and cafes before our return to the yacht in Santander.

Santander & Spain's Most Charming Village

The first part of your SeaDream Land Adventure will take you to Santillana del Mar, situated 25 miles from Santander. Strangely enough, it is not "del Mar" but several miles inland. It must be one of the most interesting villages in Spain from an architectural and historical point of view. It's one of the most beautifully preserved and very easy to walk and admire. The fortified house of Borja, the House of the Eagle, Merinos Tower and the College-church with its cloister, all this make Santillana one of the most charming villages in the whole country. If you know of a more charming one, we would love to hear about it ! Once the walking adventure has finished, you will have some drinks and snacks at the village's Parador (state historic hotel). Returning to Santander, you will enjoy a panoramic overview of this beautiful town, passing the Gothic Cathedral, Magdalena Palace, Beach of el Sardinero and the magnificent building of the Bank of Santander. The city owes its existence to the excellent harbor of the Bay of Santander. Santander was an important port for Castile in the later Middle Ages, and also for trade with the New World. It officially became a city in 1755.

Notes Guests must be able to walk even paved and cobblestone surfaces. Low heeled, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.

Vigo (Bayona), Galicia

Bayona – Sights, Tastes & Wines of Galicia

Bayona (also spelled Baiona) is a beautifully situated little port town which is now a popular seaside resort. It is also a fishing village which has managed to maintain its ancient appearance, with its medieval old quarter of narrow streets and stone building. In addition to its excellent beaches and old quarter, Bayona has a magnificent 16th century fortress overlooking the town which has been converted into a 4 star Parador. Bayona claimed its place in history when it became the first place in the Old World to learn of the discovery of America from one of Columbus' returning caravels, La Pinta, which anchored in the tiny bay on April 1st, 1493. Starting from Vigo, your motor coach will take you up Monte Castro for a view of the city and harbor before proceeding to Bayona. In Bayona your adventure will start with a guided walking orientation of the old quarter and some time to browse on your own. You will then be guided up the walls of the Monte Real castle to the Parador where you have the opportunity to taste local wines of Galicia accompanied by the local variety of tapas. The regions close proximity to Portugal and virtual isolation from the rest of Spain has had a marked influence on the style of wines from Galicia with many of them being closer in style to Portuguese wines. After a relaxing time at the Parador, the motor coach will take you back to Vigo and the yacht.

Santiago De Compostela - Pilgrim's Goal

We depart the port of Vigo for the one hour drive by motorway to Santiago de Compostela, one of the most important places in the world for Christian pilgrimage. This pilgrimage site became a symbol of the Spanish Christians' struggle against Islam. Destroyed by the Muslims at the end of the 10th century, it was completely rebuilt in the following century. With its Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque buildings, the Old Town of Santiago is described by UNESCO as one of the world's most beautiful urban areas. Your first stop will be in Obradoiro Square where you will visit the marvelous 15th century hotel of the Catholic Kings, built during the reign of Isabella and Ferdinand.
